It was starting to look a bit worrying for Barcelona and Quique Setien as Granada held firm at the Nou Camp and a 0-0 draw was looking likely.
They were utterly dominant but just couldn’t find a way through, so it’s fortunate that they have Lionel Messi to fall back on in such situations.

It wouldn’t be a surprise to see them get another after this, Granada seemed to put everything into getting a draw after going down to ten men so it will be tough to come back from this.
